March 6th - Spring Antique Show at the Portland Expo

Hats! Lots of hats. The ladies in our group made sure they had inspected EVERY vintage hat at the show. Heidi purchased a new hat for the Champagne & Croquet Party, as well as a nice retro hat case.

Other notable purchases included a few Victorian pennies for the ladies to have in their vintage purses, and Sean (of course) made the best score of the day - a WWI Iron Cross 2nd Class, with hallmarked ribbon ring, for $15!


February 13th - Rose City Steampunk Film Festival

The Rose City Steampunk Film Festival was a good idea that went off with a problem or two. The organizers failed to specify the correct media format for the submitted films. As a result, much of the submitted material was unplayable on the theater equipment. Note to organizers: 'Know your equipment and know your sources; and you will be much better off'.

"Well..... did they get the damn movie playing yet?"


January 15th - Weapons Training at Le Chateau

"It's almost MORE important to be able to pose with these things than to actually fire them...."

<-.... Before .... & .... After .... ->

"No Sean .... we aren't playing with your toys on your bed, again..."
